Harjeet was also very important for Indian junior team winning other matches recently. The story of Harjeet is quite an inspiring one.

He hails from humble background. His father is a truck driver who earns barely enough.

From his village background, he is now the Indian team captain.

Harjeet started playing hockey with his neighborhood kids in 2000s.

He was inspired by a local hockey player who dominated the field with his skill.

When he wanted to pursue hockey as his life, his parents were unsure. This is because their financial position was not good at all. His father’s earning was not enough to support his career.

However, his family borrowed money to buy Harjeet hockey kits. His parents wanted him to focus on studies instead of hockey. While he did so, his heart was with hockey.

So he would sneakily play hockey. By the time his parents found out, Harjeet made quite a name for himself and now he is the captain of Indian team.
